Cambodia is now emerging as a top cycling destination. Cambodia cycling tours have grown very rapidly during the past years. It is possible to be pedaling through rice paddies with a breeze puffing through your hair, only to be a mere 15 minutes away from the stifling streets of Phnem Penh. You can casually lock your bike to a post or a tree and explore the tourist attractions at your own leisure. Cycling through Cambodia allows you to see the sights from another vantage point, up close and personal, experiencing the ‘real’, vibrant Cambodia with its people.
